In Memoriam: Dr. Jean Couture

It’s with great sadness we share with you the news of past Royal College president Dr. Jean Couture’s passing. Our thoughts are with his family and friends. Dr. Couture was a generous, talented professor and surgeon, whose career benefitted many patients and colleagues. We had the privilege of experiencing his professionalism and kindness first hand, as he was a respected member of Council for many years before being named President-elect of the Royal College in 1983.

He served as President from 1984 to 1986, championed involvement in health and public policy, and promoted a stronger francophone point of view within the organization. We are very proud to have had the opportunity to work with him.
